"Elaine was able to take me from a person sitting before a blank canvas to a woman who saw herself as an artist! I created a beautiful seascape that gives me such a feeling of pride.
Thank you, Elaine for bringing out such talent in me –
I still can’t believe it!"

The time it takes to do a piece depends on the size of your work and the amount of detail that you want to add to it.
All of the materials are inexpensive and easy to buy at a craft store, art supply store, or online, and I provide buying suggestions and links to materials so that you'll know exactly what you need.
This is perfect for you if you're just starting out, but even a seasoned artist will enjoy this process.
I've been an artist since I was a small child, using the chalk from a broken wall to draw on the slate sidewalk in front of my home...
and I've been teaching since I was a teenager, tasked with doing arts and crafts for summer kids camp.
I've had a long career filled with lots of artsy stuff, from illustrating an international children's magazine to paintings hanging in public and private spaces across the US.
These days I'm happy to guide others into being their already creative selves. I work to bring art curriculum to active senior centers, teach art in my community, and run art programs for kids. Bringing some instruction online helps me to reach YOU - it's my prayer that you can find a means of expressing yourself that makes your heart sing!
When my students ask me what my favorite medium is, I say "The one I'm working with in that moment" because I enjoy so many of them. I love to draw, paint, and create, and I love to share what I know, too. There are many ways to make art...let's have some fun with them!
